Founded in 1828, Grace Church looks forward to celebrating our Bicenntenial very soon! Over the past several years we have listened, gathered, surveyed, focused, and discerned – asking how the Holy Spirit might be inviting us to grow in our next 200 years. Keeping all of our hopes and dreams in heart and mind, we have embarked upon a Bicentennial Capital Campaign for A Future of Grace.
We take our part in the mission of the Church: ‘To restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ,” (BCP, 855). To share in God’s mission, we have discerned three key areas of shared ministry in our community: Prayer, Compassion, and Belonging. These three focus points ground our entire life as a spiritual community and weave together every aspect of the development side of our campaign.
The Bicentennial Campaign is about BELONGING. It’s about what it looks like to belong within the Grace community – as families, adults, children, youth – through all of our worship, programs, and services. It’s also about the physical presence of Grace as a space that belongs to our community as a whole. How can we create and maintain space that exists for and with our neighbors in Gainesville? How can we be a blessing to our own members and to our wider community? How can we make belonging, as a member of the Body of Christ, both tangible and attractive? Individual and communal?
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto thee; and then use us, we pray thee, as thou wilt, and always to thy glory and the welfare of thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
